IRS consumer campaign tops 400K messages

ICBA’s campaign urging consumers to speak out against an IRS reporting proposal topped 400,000 consumer messages to members of Congress, with lawmakers continuing to consider the plan.

ICBA Campaign: ICBA is calling on community bankers to use its customizable email and social media content to urge consumers to contact Congress in opposition to the plan, which would require banks to report customer account information to the IRS.

Call Alert: Meanwhile, community bankers can call their lawmakers using a new ICBA call alert and customizable script on the proposal, which Congress is working to include in its budget-reconciliation package.
